Jo Hyun Jae admitted his thoughts on working with Kim Tae Hee and Chae Jung An in “Yongpal”.
On the 5th of October at a cafe in Nonhyun, Gangnam, Seoul we interviewed Jo Hyun Jae regarding the SBS drama “Yongpal” (Written by Jang Hyuk Rin and directed by Oh Jin Seok).
On this day Jo Hyun Jae was asked by the reporters regarding his interaction with Chae Jung An and he said, “Chae Jung An noona (older sister) is normally very easygoing. She is also the type who makes you feel comfortable. That is why I was able to call her noona and we were able to go on shooting comfortably.”
Jo Hyun Jae continued to talk about Chae Jung An by saying, “Chae Jung An highly complimented my acting so there was no awkwardness between us, hence we were able to perform without any boundaries in our scenes together. I think that was the method we used for our perfect interaction.”
Jo Hyun Jae added, “We are of the same opinion that we could have done better, but that we work well together. That is why I feel some regrets regarding my cooperation with her. I can’t help but think that we should have had more scenes together where we could have interacted more.” That is how Jo Hyun Jae explained his feelings of regret regarding his melodramatic acting with Chae Jung An in the drama.
Jo Hyun Jae talks about his closeness to Chae Jung An by saying, “We didn’t get to see each other very much but we were able to form a close relationship while working . Even now we continue to support each other’s works too.”
Jo Hyun Jae also talked about his reunion with Kim Tae Hee after 10 years. He said, “We weren’t in many scenes together. Except for the beginning, we mostly filmed separately so we didn’t really have the opportunity to chat.”
Moreover, Jo Hyun Jae was asked about working with Kim Tae Hee 10 years ago in the drama “Nine Tailed Fox”.
He revealed, “At that time I was really very reserved but Kim Tae Hee was even more reserved than I was. That is why we concentrated on our respective characters. We never got the chance to exchange jokes and whatever. However, despite the fact that we weren’t that close, because we already had experience working together in the past I think that somehow helped us to work comfortably with each other now in “Yongpal”.
Meanwhile, Jo Hyun Jae was in the SBS Wednesday-Thursday drama “Yongpal” (Written by Jang Hyuk Rin and directed by Oh Jin Seok) where he played the villain Han Do Jun, a man who is filled with great ambition. Jo Hyun Jae made a strong impression with his first turn as a villain who committed atrocities against his younger sister and other people around him.
